radio613 interviews Vlada Bilyak – creator of a new documentary entitled “Soviet-Jewish Alienation within the “Bagel & Lox Culture.” As Vlada writes, “[T]his is a short documentary I created exploring my feelings of alienation and authenticity doubts within dominant Jewish culture in North America as a Soviet Jew who emigrated from the former USSR as a child. The documentary contextualizes my experiences within interviews (mostly done on Skype) with other 20-something Soviet Jews and my mother.”

Be sure to watch the documentary on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9TglEQ3sIE&feature=player_embedded

Our interview follows up on the poignant questions and stories in the documentary about anti-semitism and xenophobia, immigration to North America and the normative culture that exists here.
*Vlada is hoping to continue to work on and expand this project and anyone interested in sharing their own Soviet-Jewish story with her is welcome to contact her at vlada.bilyak@gmail.com
